  • Florence death toll jumps to 31 as flooding wreaks havoc - The Jakarta Post

Less than a week ago, Trump infuriated officials in Puerto Rico and drew criticism from Democratic and Republican lawmakers for questioning a study that said almost 3,000 people died on the island in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. "But the people of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, all of the areas affected, you've been incredible", he said in the video posted on Twitter.

Officers say it appears the water knocked the man's auto off the roadway.

With the Great Pee Dee River receding, state officials said Interstate 95 in SC would reopen after a safety check, but travelers couldn't get very far since the highway was still closed in North Carolina because of the flooded Lumber River.

"The rain and the water you see out there now is just the beginning", he said.

Trump spoke briefly about the "epic" flooding and promised to throw all the money at North Carolina as soon as possible. The barrier island community of Emerald Isle started feeling the impacts of Florence more than a day before the hurricane made landfall, and a US government water monitoring gauge ultimately recorded water levels over 6 feet (2 meters) above normal there.

With the crisis slowly moving to SC, emergency managers on Friday ordered about 500 people to flee homes along the Lynches River.

Rosenstein spoke of possible secret Trump taping
When he announced the move, Trump originally cited Comey's mishandling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

"It's going to get rough for SC", he told them.

"People in flood prone areas or near waterways need to remain alert as rivers crest and stay above their banks in coming days", Cooper said. While Florence caused substantial damage to structures and resulted in the loss of power to thousands of people when it first made landfall, the storm's after-effects are even worse.

"Everybody's closed, so we're hoping we can at least get a tarp here, maybe two", Karen Foster told ABC News.

A new round of evacuations was ordered in SC as the trillions of gallons of water dumped by Hurricane Florence meanders to the sea, raising river levels and threatening more destruction.

Trump, who is also reviewing flood damage in SC, said as he exited the White House, "I think it will be an incredible day".

McMaster said Friday he hopes United Health Care's generosity inspires other companies across the state to donate to the One SC Fund to help the recovery from Hurricane Florence's floods. More than 300 businesses were damaged, and 455 people needed rescuing from the swirling flood waters strong enough to toss unmoored boats into backyards.

Ferry service for the public has resumed for several coastal routes in North Carolina. While North Carolina farmers managed to escape, their animals were not as lucky.

"Conway city leaders have said the river could surge past 22 feet late next week, sending enough water into neighborhoods to damage nearly 1,000 homes", according to the Charleston Post and Courier.
